Hook the CCTV camera to a monitor. Point the digital camera at the monitor, preferably with a black hood to minimize effects of other light sources or reflections. Make sure you're using a long exposure, to minimize partial-retrace effects. Obviously, make sure flash is turned off.

Yeah, you can't do it. You may want to get a composite monitor, though.

This super-cheap DVD player doubles as one. You may need an adapter to get from BNC to RCA.
